BCCP Family Day Picnic 2013

This years BCCP Family Day Picnic proved to be one of our best yet! Students and staff from near and far met up at Prospect Park last Thursday afternoon to grill and play. I.S. 291 arrived with a colorful array of water balloons and super soakers that they weren’t shy to use. Allan, Steve, and Nguyen served as the grill masters of the day; cooking up delicious dishes of BBQ’d food items like chicken, hamburgers and veggie burgers. The festivities were also marked with some football throwing, guitar playing, and a lot of [[this]].
